Dear ubose1, This is Howard from TP-LINK Support Force. Maybe the anti-virus software blocks the driver installation. Please disable the self-defense function and exit it. Then try to install the driver again.

You don't have to excuse yourself - we all started at some point.

The main problem with your setup is that your desktop has to be on in order to print from the laptop.
What you in general have to do is to '''share" the printer with your laptop.

I will assume that you are running Windows (XP or Vista) on both of your computers.
  1. Go to Start -> Printers (on your desktop computer!)
  2. Look for the printer you want to share.
  3. Right-click on the printer icon and choose "Properties"
  4. Go to the "Sharing" tab.
  5. Select "Share this printer"
If your laptop is running Windows 95.98.Me, or 2000, you have to install "Additional Drivers".

This is a very general description. If this doesn't work or you need more details, come back here and leave a comment with the following details:
  1. What is make and model of your printer?
  2. Which Operating system is installed on your desktop and on your laptop?
I will be able to be more specific, if I know what we are dealing with and maybe there is a better solution possible. Maybe the above mentioned steps are working for you, in which case I wish you "Happy printing!"

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Wireless printing


The printer has o go through a router to work for the other two computers. The only other solution is setting up a wireless network with internet sharing on a HOC and share all file and printer services though it. The main PC would act as a router. for $40.00 you can buy a router and make it work.

Printing remotely from laptop -- can I?


I assume it's a Brother printer not your brother's printer right? I have an HP and it's a wireless printer which is accessible through my network, you have to install the printer driver and software on to the other laptop that is connected wirelessly to your network.

2WIRE wireless router/DSL from AT&T


unless this is a wireless enabled or lan RJ45 connectable printer you cannot, the pc that the printer is connected to must be on at the time of the printing.

Wireless printers have their own arial and allocated ip address, Lan RJ45 connective printers can be connected to the router.

Help please....printer name does NOT appear


You must have a network set up, and you must enable file and printer sharing on the desktop. The laptop and the desktop should be in the same workgroup. Some firewalls will cause this problem.
Start with the network setup wizard in Settings/Network.

Print from laptop wirelessly


Yes there is NO reason why you can't. You must simply install the Printer Drivers on BOTH PC's. Using the Software supplied, first Setup/Install the printer on your Desktop PC, FIRST, as a LOCAL printer. Then 2nd, from ya lappy setup your printer as a "Networked" printer.. locate and connect.. the driver will install, & ya can then print a Test Page, to see if it is all OK. After the Drivers are installed at BOTH locations you will be able to print from your laptop through your desktop to ya printer... no worries..

Wireless printer


it sounds as if the printer may not be set as the default printer, so check in the installed printers and check and also check that the printer you are sending the print to is the setup one and not a pdf or microsoft office document printer, this is found on the drop down box when the print option appears. i am also assuming that the printer has worked before from vista to an xp machine as sometimes xp needs a small update to be used with a vista pc on the network
